Conflicts of Interest

INFORM YOUR PRACTICE

We understand how important it is for you to stay ahead of potential conflicts of interest that may arise in your work with clients. CBA offers resources and information to keep you informed on the issues.

Task Force on Conflicts of Interest

The Task Force on Conflicts of Interest released its final report and recommendations in 2008. Focusing on the lawyer-client relationship, the report examines:

  • How the lawyer-client relationship is established
  • The fundamental duties lawyers owe their clients
  • The benefit of written understandings between clients and lawyers

To help lawyers recognize, deal with and avoid conflicts of interest, the Task Force prepared a Conflicts of Interest Toolkit with practical checklists and precedents to use and adapt for your practice.

We also intervene in key court cases addressing conflicts of interest.
